will be paying tribute to their choice of art tool, the spraycan. The
killer line up includes:

Whether you are a newbie or veteran to street art, this is the show to
educate yourself in the art of the spraycan. The heavy hitters are
here to add some color to your walls and flavor to your sketchbooks.

Opening reception is on September 11th from 7 - 10pm. DJ Don Kainoa,
Spinnerty, and Bozak will be dropping the beats. This is a 21+ event.
Exhibition will run through October 9th. And don't forget to mark
